UK: Some Faiths are More Equal than Others
by Samuel Westrop
In February, Britain's largest Jewish newspaper, the Jewish Chronicle disclosed that Yitzchak Schochet, a Rabbi in North London, was removed as patron of an interfaith charity because "the government believed he was too extreme." It reported:
Rabbi Schochet has undoubtedly made some troubling comments. In January, after the Islamist terror attacks in Paris, he stated that the staff of Charlie Hebdo "committed a sin against society," and that, "Any sensitive human being who cares about the rights of another will find these cartoons abhorrent." Islamist media outlets have condemned a tweet sent by Schochet, in which he told an anti-Israel activist: "I have a spare Israeli flag if you want to hang yourself on it."
